The Call of the Highlands
The Call of the Highlands is #158 in the Bantam series and was published in June 1982. Lord Alistair McDonon becomes the heir to the Clan when his brothers die in a fishing accident. He needs to find a bride because he is expected to marry his brother's betrothed! He meets Arina Beverley and convinces her to go as his "wife" which she is willing to do in order to be able to help her sick mother.
This cover shows our hero saving our heroine from drowning in the sea. We see a servant wearing a tartan plaid kilt along with the castle in the background. Done by an unknown artist, it shows the allure of a story set in Scotland!
